Demonstrators jailed

KUWAIT: The public prosecution decided to jail the owner of the “Ateej Al-Misyam” Twitter account – a bedoon – for 21 days at the central prison along with a number of bedoon demonstrators. Informed source said the public prosecution charged the demonstrators with illegally gathering, having a group account on WhatsApp and spreading false news, and accused one of them of urging to kill officials from the central agency for illegal residents. The source said the prosecution is waiting for the technical report from state security to compare it with the confessions of the Twitter user, and whether there are those who support him inside or outside Kuwait. The prosecution is also waiting for the state security technical report that will show all moves of the suspect, as preliminary investigations revealed that he runs 16 accounts on Twitter, most under fictitious names. – Al-Qabas
